Retention Pond W/mangroves Fla Stocking W Bass

Recommended Posts

THE RETENTION POND BORDERING MY PROPERTY WAS JUST DRAINED, CLEANED, REPLANTED WITH MANGROVES & SEA GRAPES.  THIS IS A VERY OLD POND WITH MANY MANGROVES SURROUNDING IT. IT EMPTIES WHEN TOO FULL INTO THE GULF OF MEXICO HERE IN VENICE FL. THE WATER IS NO DOUBT BRACKISH BUT FOUR LARGE AERATORS HAVE BEEN INSTALLED. I AM SURE IF THERE WERE FISH IN IT BEFORE, THEY DID NOT SURVIVE THE CLEANING. I WOULD LILKE TO STOCK IT WITH SOME BASS  OR OTHER FISH.  ANYBODY KNOW IF THEY WILL SURVIVE AND ALSO WHERE I MIGHT PURCHASE SOME LIVE BASS NEARE ME?  THANKS FOR ANY HELP WITH THIS.

Hey I'm your neighbor down in Englewood.  First if they planted mangroves be careful, they are protected. DEP will monitor their development, Ive been chased out of similar ponds here in Englewood.  If the state thinks they are going to flourish there, its probably going to be too salty for bass to flourish especially if there is a direct connection with the gulf.  I've caught bass in canals off of Charlotte Harbor but they were tossed there from across rain weirs etc by idiots.  They weren't coping well with the salt like they do up the Myakka River where they can travel and adjust to the influx of the tide.  Also don't broadcast plans to stock freshwater gamefish in Fl.  The FWC will go after to you for stocking without permitting and they do have agents monitoring forums like floridasportsmans forum and aggressively making various wildlife violation cases.
